Akai Kiri by Rxl-Noir Akai Kiri by Rxl-Noir
Finally, the third in my current 5 katana project; Akai Kiri, the dual red heat kodachi!
Designed as an anti-materiel sword, this baby cut through almost anything like a hot knife through butter. Next one is posibly a tanto, but since it's a small one, maybe I'll put it up the same time as the final one.

Akai Kiri, a dual heat kodachi developed by Reinhardt Armaments, specially designed for close range encounter with high-speed combat in mind, with anti-materiel weapon as its main purpose. Using an advanced metallic material and reinforced with a 3rd gen S3 (Shift Shield Stream), Akai Kiri have a superb endurance against anything while pertaining its flexibility. Using the nanobot technology inside S3, Akai Kiri is able to heat its blade to the point it hot enough to melt and slicing apart anything without breaking past its limit.

Sorry for the spam, but I just got a new idea for you, if you're looking for another katana-style weapon to make, that is. It's two weapons like Akai Kiri, but instead of twin kodachi, it's a daito or katana & wakizashi set called Meian (light & dark in Japanese). The blades are a swirl of black and white and are commonly carried on the hip like they would traditionally, with the wakizashi hilt hanging below the katana. My personal preference would be to add a tsuba (handguard) to the weapons, seeing as you wouldn't want your hand to slide up during a forward thrust.

For their special ability, For now, let's make them "standard" HF blades that harness micro-vibrations and friction to cut through almost anything. Another idea would be to have them attach at the hilt to create a double-bladed sword.

We can bounce around some more ideas later, but please, tell me whatcha think when you have the chance. :)

Sorry for the late response, been ran into some trouble with my head lately.
Nice concept, and especially love the pair katana/daito + wakizashi set. Swirl? You meant the textures?
The double bladed though, seems like it'll look a bit cumbersome...

If you want, I'll make it for you, but probably outside from my current set though, since I already have an idea for the last of the series... Is that okay?



(and if you do want it, take it easy with the time. Since you probably know my flow time for works like this... Hopefully I wouldn't ran into some procrastination wall/sick days)

You don't have to make it, I won't force ya. Besides, I have no way to pay for a commission anyways :P

As for the basic look of the texture, here's a basic idea of the concept behind it: c1.staticflickr.com/9/8208/821…

I might just write it out for myself and continue brainstorming.

But yea, if you wanna make it, I'll be more than happy to have some brainstorm sessions with you about it. Don't overwork yourself on my account, either. Do what you want.

Sorry for the super, super late response. 2 months without response is bad, I know :(

It's okay though, consider it as a gift for you :)
But alas, work and other IRL things in some ways or another keep on pulling me away from working on it. Hopefully though, it won't take another month or so to bring Meian to at least a presentable level to you.

Are we going to get a sheath for this thing?

Still haven't got the 'click' for a nice sheath, so probably not for now. But it will, trust me. Kinda weird bringing these swords without sheath.

And the relentless attacks of workpile (and mass procrastination) is harsh, so don't expect it to come anytime soon. And I still owe 2 more swords of this series to boot.

Too bad I promised myself to not use any DA domain art, cause I could probably come up with an OC or two to use these toys. :)

Like Raiden right? not the Raiden from MGS 2 if not from MGS 4 and MGR Revegeance. By the way, I will use those blades for 1 or two of my OC and I have an idea for their sheat...if you want it

ah, do you speak español eh? well, the first idea I got for the sheat of those swords are sheats similar to Raiden's one, but(if you want) with the function to release fast the blade, like Jetstream Sam's sheat

Only a little. :) My idea for my OC would be him wearing it across his lower back in a single sheath. Kinda like this: www.realswordmaster.com/produc…
